About me

Hi! I'm Bri Gonzalez (she/they). I'm a queer, Chicana/e poet born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. Writing has whisked me off to Colorado, where I have begun my journey in the University of Colorado Boulder's MFA program. My work focuses on monsters -- cryptids, boogeymen, zombies, etc. -- as well as mental disorders and how they're perceived in media.Alongside writing, I teach Introduction to Creative Writing at CU Boulder and worked with high school level students during my undergrad.I'm horrible at talking about myself, like most writers, but here's an assortment of bits and baubles that sum up who I am: I'm addicted to caffeine; I love admiring the moon; I play tabletop roleplay games, watch Food Network shows, and binge horror movies. My friends mean the world to me, even when they roast the shit out of me. I have a void cat named Dahlia, who is my favorite demon. If I could give the universe to anyone, it would be my sibling.
